Posts about Katy Perry were all over Twitter during the Super Bowl halftime show, but Chinese social media users were calling the performer by a different name.
Take, for instance, the time when Perry sat on a giant banana during one of her sets at the 2008 MTV Europe Music Awards.
But, according to Chan, Perry isn't the only celebrity to earn an alias among Chinese Internet users.
"Lord of Butt," or "luo ba," is apparently a popular nickname for Jennifer Lopez in China and Hong Kong. Adam Levine is called "sao dang," which translates to "Flirty Adam."
